Navigating Your Back Injury Claim

There are different types of back injuries. Some are herniated disks and may require surgery. Some involve pain at the injury location but also involve pain going down a leg – even though the leg wasn’t hurt (this is often called radiating pain or “radiculopathy.”)

If you had any previous back injury or previous back treatment, the insurer often is interested to blame that old condition and use that old condition as an excuse to deny your need to be treated for your work injury. The insurer may deny the case in part by blaming your injury symptoms as allegedly caused by “pre-existing” conditions. But you should know:

  • Pre-existing conditions are not necessarily felt by the patient or even known to the patient.
  • Even MRI and X-ray findings of a pre-existing condition don’t necessarily mean there were any symptoms.
  • Any pre-existing condition that is “aggravated” by your work injury is covered by worker’s compensation.
